We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website. If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date. If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!
So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …
Community Outreach Committee will be sponsoring a float in the Fayette County Fair Parade.
The Parade Theme for the year is "Old Time Rockin"
We will be using Brian's Trailer (the same one we used for caroling). and will start decorating on Fri. evening at 7 PM in front of Brian and Katie's house. If you have items to aid in the decorating or suggestions please be there at 7 to share.
The parade is from 10:30 til..?.. on Sat. Sept 5. Line up starts at 10:00. Seth has "volunteered" a Brasher Gunn truck to pull the float. I did not sign us up for being judged in the float contest as all riders would be required to be on the float by 10 and didn't want anyone to think they had to sit in the sun and heat that long. We decided NOT to toss candy or anything as it's a danger to riders and watchers.
We decided to try to represent all of our Mission Projects possible on the float. I can make laminated signs that we can attach to the tent. We hope to have some gospel music.
The list of Missions and suggestions for the float for the parade are:
Lit Wits-couple of chairs with readers
Knit Wits-couple of rocking chairs with knitters (fits the old time rocking theme)
Fit Wits-boot scootin dancers
CUPS-a back pack with school supplies
Kairos-Rick any suggestions, we thought about someone in a prison uniform holding a Bible..is that too tacky?
Quilters....a quilt over the tent
AMEN-a shopping cart with food
Second Chance-maybe a model?? with clothes from Second Chance
Farmer's Market...the stand with the AMEN donation Sign
Music Program-Praise Band...please, please, please That Old Time Rockin can surely be gospel! If we can't get the praise band does anyone have a boom box with some good gospel music?
We are open to all suggestions, please bring your ideas and props to Katie and Brian’s House Sept. 4 at 7 PM or earlier.
